Derek Diener

Doktorand at Department of Energy and Environment, Environmental Systems Analysis

Derek conducts a research project (life cycle management-closing the loop) that focuses on material and value in a company’s product chain. Function and material that is normally lost in common recycling processes can possibly be retained with alternative strategies. Derek seeks this improvement potential and to “close-the-loop.” The project also involves evaluating different methods of gathering, analyzing and presenting information for use in a company-setting.
